Event Cancellation due to Weather
Hikers have been evacuated from the Otter trail twice in the last years due to alarmingly high seas. During our trial runs we have seen evidence of these high waves in the form of debris deposited high on the coastline and vegetation killed by the salt water. Waves have reached higher on two occasions in the last 12 months than they have in the past 70 years. Should conditions of a similar nature prevail on or around the day of the race we will have no option but to cancel the Otter Run. In this event we will first revert to a plan “B” which will involve an alternative run however, it is conceivable that conditions may affect even the staging of this option in which case we will cancel the whole event. We, the event organizers reserve the right to take this decision. Decisions of this nature will not be taken lightly and will be made in the interests of our participant’s safety and the environment.
